    Yes, I am an irascible old Curmudgeon and got my granny ******* in a twisted bunch. Sorry I posted photos of my filthy steering wheel. I had absolutely no idea the leather on the wheel was supposed to be matte finish. Tell me "nikhsub 1" - "What does your detailer use to clean your wheel - a...
